There seems to be no end to the ingenious ways people figure out how to make a bad situation into a good one. There once was a housing shortage for students in Amsterdam. Instead of ignoring the problem, they came up with a great solution.
Shipping Container Housing Complex
They built tiny apartments using shipping containers. Shipping containers are a great start to building a small house for anyone – including students. Typically, students don’t have a lot of money to spare (we all know how much furthering your education costs) and are quite happy to live in an affordable, small place.
Amsterdam has taken it one step further by building an entire complex of apartments that students can afford and are happy to live in.
Check out the video below that was created by Tiny House Film. Very interesting.
Shipping containers are just one plan for building a tiny or small house. If a shipping container is not your preference, there are dozens of designs for building a little house using traditional methods (you can find many of them here).
